„We also believed in the success of Drakensang: The Dark Eye and are happy to see this outraging performance in the German market now. We would like to thank all the people and partners involved that helped us to make Drakensang that successful, and we’d like to thank all consumers, RPG and The Dark Eye fans who awaited and supported Drakensang for months”, Steffen Hippe, CSO of dtp entertainment, happily says.

Drakensang: The Dark Eye has been published in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on August 1st, 2008. Internationally, Drakensang will be released in Q1 2009 in several languages.

Drakensang’s story has been developed by the original TDE authors. This makes the world of Drakensang authentic: TDE players won’t miss a thing. RPG players that are not familiar with TDE will dive into a medieval world that looks and feels like a trip to Central Europe, taking you back in time for centuries: Explore beautiful cities built of framework houses, hunt monsters and creatures in dark woods, search and find treasures in medieval castles and climb up the snowy mountains of the Kosh region, where Drakensang takes place.

Modern computer technology allows it to bring Aventuria, the world of The Dark Eye, to life. Stunning 3D graphics, tactical turn-based fights, displayed in a real time environment, and classic RPG gameplay along with a story that takes more than 1,000 pages will fascinate you.
